One splinter fell into the eye of a small boy who loved and was loved by a small girl. He began to see things in a distorted manner and began to act badly. So when a bad snow queen came she was able to draw him away.
The girl missed him terribly and decided to look for him. Most of the book tells of her strange adventures with both humans and animals. When she finally came near to the frozen palace of the snow queen, a friendly person told her that she could only be successful if she could remove the glass splinter from the boy's eye.
A second volume, (The Snow Queen (Fairy eBooks)), is a free Kindle download. It is also based on the H.B. Paull translation, but features illustrations by T. Pym. These drawings are loaded with Victorian charm. The publisher claims that the book has been especially formatted for the Kindle Fire HD. I have a black and white Kindle Touch, and the book displayed well on that.
So, you can download a Kindle freebie or step up to a classically illustrated version for a few dollars. Either way you will be well pleased.
The Paull translation of this story has an elegant old-world sort of feel to it. It is not so old fashioned that it is hard to follow, but it is not like some of the modern versions that are inclined toward glibness in the service of action and narrative drive. The story line is clear enough, but the execution is dreamy and intentionally artificial. It can be too "weird" or ambiguous for some tastes, which is understandable, and the fairy tale/fable quest can be read as a simple adventure story or a parable crammed full of symbolism and deeper meaning.Read more ›
I've also included reviews for the "Stories from Hans Andersen" version (Part 1) "Andersen Fairy Tales illustrated by Edmund Dulac" version (Part 2) and "Fairy eBooks" version (Part 4).
From this Thanksgiving to Christmastime I will only be reviewing Holiday books for your reading pleasure before drastically scaling back my reviews, so until such a time have a very, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This tale used to delight me as a little girl, and reading it again now takes me back to my childhood, to the little girl curled up in bed dreaming of adventure.
